ADOPTED ON 08-13-16 –This beautiful little guy was found dodging traffic and rescued by a wonderful woman who didn’t want to see him get hit. We don’t know what his story is and how he ended up roaming the streets. Most likely Moses was abandoned, as so many puppies are, because someone just didn’t feel like taking care of an unwanted litter. Moses does not seem to be affected by what happened to him in his short, little life, he is just a normal puppy which means he will make a wonderful companion.
Moses is about 15 weeks old and a lovely coated Hybrid Retriever Catahoula mix. His expressive face will guarantee to charm whoever he meets; he is a typical puppy. Moses loves to play, play, and play. He romps and wrestles with the other foster dogs and is very curious and adventurous. He adores everyone he meets and they love him; he is great with kids. If you are an active family looking for a companion to be outdoors with you, Moses would be right by your side. Whatever the circumstances are that led him to the safety of a loving foster home, the important thing now is to get this wonderful pup a forever home where he can grow up as a treasured and wanted member of the family.
His foster mom describes Moses as a sociable happy-go-lucky little guy, like most puppies, he explores everything around him because he’s curious about the world. His playful happy energy will make a wonderful playmate for a family with kids and he would be a perfect companion to another dog. He likes to be with his humans, get plenty of belly rubs, and have a nice warm bed and cuddle up with you wherever you are.
This adorable guy is looking for a loving family that will dote on him and treat him as he deserves–a lifetime cherished member. Our rescue works from our hearts for our dogs; it is the least we can do for them because they deserve nothing less. We owe it to our dogs that the wonderful people who stand to be the last chapter of their rescue and the first chapter of their new forever lives deserve him.
Moses is ready to slide right into your heart, do you have the requirements of a forever home of his own and endless love to celebrate his special qualities? Now all he needs is many years where he can continue to be a happy and loyal member of a family. Will you open your heart to him and give him the love he so deserves? In return, his companionship and friendship will be with you every day, rain or shine.
This dog cannot be adopted to Massachusetts residents due to new laws regarding rescue dogs being prohibited from adoption. Please contact Patricia Cabral at: 617-626-1786 or Mike Cahill at: 617-626-1794 for questions regarding

ABOUT THE BREED
Labs are healthy dogs and generally will live long lives of 10 to 14 years and are one of the most popular breeds in the USA because they are loyal, loving, affectionate and patient, making great family dogs. They are highly intelligent, good-natured, very willing and eager to please; they are among the top choices for service dog work. They love to play, especially in water, never wanting to pass up the opportunity for a good swim.
These lively dogs have an excellent, reliable, temperament and are friendly, superb with children and equable with other dogs. They crave human leadership and need to feel as though they are part of the family and are easily trained. This breed of dog is wonderful with people of all ages, and interacts well with children.
If a Lab has had plenty of exposure to other dogs, cats, and small animals, and has been trained, he’ll be friendly with other pets, too. They get along well with other dogs and can easily adapt to live with other small pets.
Not only loves kids, he enjoys the commotion they bring with them. He’ll happily attend a child’s birthday party, and even willingly wear a party hat. Like all dogs, however, he needs to be trained how to act around kids — and kids need to be taught how to act around the dog. As with every breed, you should always teach children how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children to prevent any biting or ear or tail pulling on the part of either party. No dog, no matter how friendly, should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
The Lab is a wonderful family dog that gets along with all members both big and small, rarely are they aggressive. They are very loving and affectionate and are eagerly playful. Labs have a very positive temperament and get along with most strangers.
Lab loves to run, swim, and play with children and adults alike. They are extremely loyal to their owners, hard-working and are generally good-natured, originally a type of gun dog. Labs are extremely versatile and have been put to use in the following roles: hunting, guide dog for the blind, police k9, search and rescue, drug sniffing, retrieving, as well as tricks and competitive obedience.
ABOUT THE BREED
Catahoula Leopard Dogs have a gentle family spirit. Easily comfortable playing on the carpet with children. Gentle, wise and easygoing, they make an agreeable family dog and warm-hearted friend. They are naturally protective of their home and family, and make excellent watch/guard dogs.
Catahoula’s are exceptionally intelligent and loyal. However, they are also a highly energetic and very assertive breed. They are affectionate and sensitive to their owner. As one owner puts it, they are “strong” and “made of whipcord and leather”. They are very protective of their family
CHILDREN AND PETS
Some describe the Catahoula as a great babysitter for kids. The Catahoula is suitable for families with children, but despite his family loyalty and protectiveness, all dogs should always be supervised in the presence of toddlers or young children.
Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children to prevent any mouthing, biting, or ear or tail pulling on the part of either party. Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s sleeping or eating and not to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
Catahoula’s get along well with other dogs. All adult dogs regardless of the breed, they may require more of an adjustment period before they welcome the company of another dog. To ensure the best relationship, choose a dog of the opposite sex. Make introductions in a neutral area away from your home.
TALK ABOUT CATAHOULA FROM THE OWNERS
- I love this breed because they are very loyal and not aggressive.
~Erica G, owner of a Catahoula Leopard Dog
- We just adopted our second Catahoula puppy and they are the laziest and low maintenance dogs I have ever owned, lol. We have fallen madly in love with the Catahoula breed but I have yet to see any working from these dogs! Lol
~Robin Lynn Williams, owner of a Catahoula
A LOVING FAMILY DOG
- My boyfriend has had his Catahoula for four years and she is one of the sweetest dogs I know. She is very protective but so very loving at the same time. Since I’ve come to live with him she likes to stick close to me while he’s at work, and while we already knew she’d be great with the baby we’re expecting it’s comforting to see the facts back this up.
~Maryah M, owner of a Catahoula Leopard Dog
- These dogs are loyal and offer the best protection. And they’re great with little kids
~Medusa, owner of a Catahoula Leopard Dog
GOOD WATCHDOG WHO LOVES CHILDREN
- Our Catahoula/Bloodhound mix is the best of both worlds. She loves children and is an extremely good watchdog.

IMPORTANT POINTS ABOUT PACK LEADERS
It is a natural instinct for a dog to have an order in its pack, therefore, the only way your relationship with your dog can be a complete success you must be the pack leader:
- When we humans live with dogs, we become their pack
- The entire pack cooperates under a single leader
- Lines are clearly defined and rules are set
- Dogs communicates his displeasure with growling and eventually biting
- Humans MUST be higher up in the order than the dog.
- The humans must be the ones making the decisions, not the dogs.
Schedule Feeding Time – Find your dog’s schedule so that you can work with that
- Feed your dog on a regular schedule time, always within a half hour of the time
Schedule Water – Help your dog bee successful
- Keep a schedule for water, however, you should design a schedule that fits you
- Remove the water dish after the first feeding in the morning
- After the night feeding, leave water dish for two hours, then take it up
- Before your last walk for the night, put the water dish down about an hour before
- Then walk your dog 45 minutes after he has had water. There will might be days where that might be an exception for water.
Schedule Walking Time – Find your dog’s schedule, then gently move it to your schedule.
- Start by taking the dog out every two hours for two days, if he goes every two hours,
- Then take him out every three hours, for two days,
- until you reach the time frame you need – every six hours—eight hours etc
The biggest problem is once a dog has had one accident in the house, there is a urine smell that the dog detects and his instinct to continue mark where he smells urine. This is how wild dogs let other dogs know that this territory is taken and for dogs not in the pack to go elsewhere. If you keep the house clean and pour some urine outside where you want him to go and then praise him when he marks there you will find house-breaking goes very easily.
